|Two years in a row! Tomatoes in Wall|
O'Waters on May 12, 2014.
Any early-transplanted warm season vegetables required protection with Walls O'Water or second best the use of frost blankets. Even so warm season vegetables will likely be set back and take time to resume growth. Cloudy weather during the week didn't allow much solar gain for Walls O'Water.
Planting thoughts this week should take into account wet soils. Give them time to dry to a medium moisture content before transplanting or seeding. Don't walk in or work soil when wet; you will only destroy soil structure if you do. Meanwhile, consider what warm season vegetable varieties you want to plant this year.
